Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Continuous rebooting. Please help!
System cycling can be caused by a number of problems.
First: tryusing F8 on startup and go to "Last Known Good Configuration." Youcould also try booting up using a recovery disk and repairing theinstallation. If that doesn't work, there are a few other options:
Trybooting to the Windows XP CD-ROM and go to the recoveryconsole. Oncethere copy the USERINIT.EXE from the CD or from anotherworking PC to the windows system32 directory. Once done, reboot .
Itcould be that RAM has failed or has gotten dirty. Try removing your ramand cleaning it with an electrical cleaner like Truvolt, and thenreplacing it.
Or it could be caused by processoroverheating. Click delete, F1, or F10 when your computer starts to gointo your BIOS and look for PC Health > Temperature (or similar).This should show you the current temperature of the computer andtheemergency shutdown temperature. The emergency shutdown temperatureis asafeguard for when your computer gets too hot it will shut itselfdownto prevent damage.
You can either raise the shutdown temperature or switch it off completely, however be warned that you may damage your computer (or the clients) if the computer gets too hot.Ifthe temperature was causing the reboots then you should considergettingbetter cooling for the computer such as more powerful CPU fansand morecase fans.
Your computer could be set to reboot on a system failure. Try getting in via safe mode by tapping F8 on startup.
Then go to “My Computer” and choose “Properties”. Goto the “Advanced” Tab and under “Startup and Recovery” press the “Settings” button.
Under the “System Failure” box there will be a checkbox saying “Automatically Restart”. Untick this box and click Ok.
Onyour next restart you'll see a blue screen with technical details.Create a new problem report with these. Or you can diagnose with thefollowing list:http://www.technibble.com/troubleshooting-windows-stop-errors-what-they-mean-in-english/
Whileyou're in safe mode, you can also use your event veiwer to see if thereare any error messages that explain the reboot. Start> Run, type “eventvwr” -- please share these as well or google them for information and share this.
Youcould also have corrupt boot files or a virus. If you can get into safemode, you might want to consider copying data to an external hard driveand using your manufacturer restore discs. If you can't get into safemode and your data is already backed up, you might also consider this.
Finally, this could also be a power supply problem.

At what point does it reboot? Before or after you see the Windows screen? If you see the splash screen then it reboots, it's a Windows error, very likely, best solution would be to reinstall windows. If it doesn't make it that far, it may be a RAM or m/b error.
